Gman's frogspawn is starting to turn into tiny wriggling tadpoles. A few have started to swim freely in the tank, the rest are still digesting their egg sacks.
Gman is thrilled and spends a lot of his free time playing beside the tank to keep a careful on them.
All the hustle and bustle of school runs again has come at the wrong time for me as a woman, so I'm feeling quite tired today.
I spent the morning sorting some donations and listing them online while the two smallest played beside me. There wasn't anything much exciting in the bags but I did claim an old childrens board book for myself.
The pages had at some point been stuck together and prised apart. This had left the pictures quite badly damaged and I couldn't see anyone wanting it.
So I'm trying an experiment. I've laid the book out flat and covered the pages using one of my stash of tester pots. I've no idea how the paint will react to the cardboard book but it'll be interesting to find out.
I intend to work my way along until the entire book is covered and turn it into a mini-scrapbook or junk journal for DD1.
I'm toying between two ideas. One being to fill each page with her favourite things and two being "10 things we love about..."
I'll let you know how it goes
